Lactation Cookies for Nursing Moms! | momaroo

A mom shared this recipe with me in our nursing room at work. I made these and they are fantastic! I wasn't sure if the increase in supply came from the brewer's yeast, the flax seed, the oatmeal or just the fact that I kept shoveling calories in my mouth. Anyway, from the website...

"This recipe makes a ton of cookies. Last time I made it I had a little over 6 dozen. I made them for my sister-in-law who is due any day with baby number 2. It was a great activity to get her 3 year old son involved in as well."

Happy baking!!!

BTW... I had to go to my co-op to get the Brewer's Yeast. It wasn't in the typical grocery stores. I think you can also find it at places that sell health food/supplements.

They are really yummy. Just don't tell everyone they're milkin mama cookies. I think it freaked my friend's dad out when she told him what they were for. Haha.
